The Balance: Book One

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Too often life is viewed in terms of good and evil, black or white, and the balance point tipping in either direction is ignored. Why should the afterlife be any different? We are given a choice when we die to move on to the Source of life, stay on earth and slowly evolve into more of what we were (good people become angelic and bad people become demonic), or a chosen few can work to keep the Balance between them. Grey is such a warrior who works to maintain that balance. He wishes to retire by moving onto the next phase of existence (the Source), so he needs to train a replacement. Grey recruits Pete to learn how to destroy demons and when necessary smack angels around to keep them in line. With help from an eclectic crew of other metaphysical “policemen and women, like the no nonsense Raven,” Grey and Pete stop the Biblical demon Legion from destroying a small town in Illinois, setting off a chain reaction that could upset the Balance in this supernatural buddy cop comedy.

Couldn't put it down

This is the first book i couldn't put down in years! I laughed many times. Had tears in my eyes at one point and finished the book with anticipation for the next book in the series.

Could not stop reading!

This book was great, a perfect balance of everything to keep you interested all the way through. Must buy!!!

Well written, great read!!

This is one of those books that hooks you from the first chapter on. As soon as you start reading, you notice Nick Shamhart has a very unique, witty writing style. He makes you root for these characters and you want to keep reading to find out each person's backstory and how it effects what's happening right then. I couldn't put it down. Even if you aren't into "ghost" novels, there really is something everyone will like in this book. I am really looking forward to more from this author!
